Honda suspends production of the City till September; To be resumed in Tapukara

Honda Cars India Ltd. has announced that the production of the City at the Greater Noida plant has been halted for now, and will be resumed in the first week of September at the manufacturer’s new plant in Tapukara. Inaugurated in February earlier this year, the Tapukara plant is located in Alwar district in Rajasthan and has an installed capacity of producing 1,20,000 units per annum.

Until now, the Tapukara plant churned out the Amaze for the Indian market as well as critical components like engine and gearbox. With the recently launched Mobilio getting off to a flying start, the demand has surged beyond the capacity at the company’s Greater Noida plant. The ideal capacity at the plant caused by the pause in production of the City will be utilised to produce the Mobilio.

Talking about the decision, Mr. Jnaneswar Sen, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Sales Honda Cars India, said, “The shift of City production to Tapukara will ensure better availability and timely deliveries of Honda City and the newly launched Mobilio. We have received an overwhelming response to both the City and the Mobilio, and it is necessary to maximise production at both the plants for the benefit of the customer.”

The Honda City has been selling in consistent numbers since its launch, averaging more than 7,600 units every month. The demand for Mobilio however, seems to have surpassed the Japanese manufacturer’s expectations and has compelled Honda to take this decision. Besides, moving the production of City to Tapukara will also save the company a small amount in logistics costs.
